Hypocrites are very high energy & great musical abilities. Each actor played at least 1 instrument and one guy played 4 (not at the same time obviously!) Lots of fun!!!!

Mai tails and Gilbert and can you go wrong? It's a fun, light evening out...these guys are really talented if you've seen any of there other stuff but this is obviously just supposed to be pure fun.

This production was a riot! Loads of fun, and incredibly creative directing and staging. All the plot-line and songs from the original Pirates of Penzance were there, but the costumes, stage sets and directing were FAR OUT, MAN!! I think Gilbert...continued

Quotes & Highlights

Read about the production in the Chicago Sun-Times.
Read an interview with director Sean Graney in Time Out Chicago.
“In his giddy, ever-buoyant, freshly reinvented revival of the show for the Hypocrites, director Sean Graney has stepped up to the helm of this goofy classic and… turned it into the very model of a thoroughly hip and playfully modern piece of musical theater … The result is a zany delight.” -Chicago Sun-Times
“This is not your father’s Gilbert and Sullivan. I kept thinking about how much Gilbert would have liked it. And of all Graney’s many non-traditional creations in this town over the last few years, this is certainly among my favorites.” _ -Chicago Tribune_


Please note:
Pirates of Penzance is presented in promenade style which means there is no fixed seating, and the audience physically moves around the space with the actors. There is seating in which to rest temporarily, but you will be asked to stand or move during the performance. It’s a lot of fun, but the producers caution against attending if you prefer not to participate in this type of theater experience.
